Sidney Crosby returns to ice, but remains out indefinitely with broken jaw

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby skated before the team's practice Monday, but remains sidelined indefinitely with a broken jaw.

Crosby wore a protective mask while skating with injured teammates James Neal and Paul Martin. Coach Dan Bylsma says there is no timetable for Crosby's return, but called it a positive step for the NHL's leading scorer.

Crosby has not played since being struck in the face by a puck on March 30.

Neal hasn't played since being diagnosed with a concussion following a hit from New York Rangers defenceman Michael Del Zotto on April 5. Bylsma says Neal is "symptom-free" but added that Neal will not be rushed back.

Centre Evgeni Malkin, who missed Saturday's 3-1 win over Florida with an upper body injury, could play Wednesday against Montreal.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
